The Torah was not written just for the "Jews". Moses was not a Jew and neither was Abraham. Abraham came from a gentile stock.
If Jesus is not the promised messiah who came and will come again, the temple services would still be going on and they would not have been destroyed after Jesus' death and resurrection.
The practice of Judaism requires a temple, animal sacrifices and a a priest, if not, Judaism in reality cannot be practiced in the absence of these elements. This is the consequence of not accepting that a messiah has already come whose name is Jesus who fulfilled all the prophecies of the messiah.
The third temple can never be rebuilt and neither will another messiah come. Read here why: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_Temple
Who was Abraham and who are "gentiles"? https://www.gotquestions.org/Abraham-Jew-Gentile.html (Another article)
The whole point of the Torah and the OT and the temple, and sacrifices, and the priesthood was to point to a superhuman (beyond human) savior and not just another human being who would come to save all and who will be born of a virgin as God in the flesh, live an exemplary life, be crucified as the ultimate sacrifice and be resurrected and ascend to heaven and who promised to come back the second time to complete the mission of worldwide salvation. These events are historically undeniable. If these teachings are rejected, you might as well reject Judaism which really cannot be practiced now without a temple or sacrifices or a priesthood by rejecting the messiah who already came and fulfilled all the messianic prophecies and proved as such.
